Eat– for Good Health

Dragon Fruit Smoothie anyone?  (It’s 90 degrees in SoCal).

Perhaps the only thing more interesting than the Dragon Fruit’s looks is the way it tastes.  Easily peel away the pink outer skin and inside you’ll find a milky white flesh speckled with tiny black seeds similar to those of a kiwi, adding a crunchy texture to its juicy pulp. Similar to a cross between a melon and a pear, the sweet yet slightly sour taste is delicious, especially when eaten chilled.

Use Dragon Fruit to make a homemade sorbet, smoothie or tropical drink that will refresh and satisfy any summer thirst. It’s also a savory ingredient when used in jellies, jams–even sauces.  Not only does the Dragon Fruit offer a diversity of useful options in the kitchen, it’s also said to be one of the healthiest fruits on earth.
